Office of Accessibility Services

Mission Statement

SUNY Geneseo, in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, is dedicated to providing advocacy, accommodations, and support services to students with disabilities who present current and proper documentation of disability to the Office of Accessibility Services.

The Office of Accessibility Services will proactively provide, at no cost to the student, reasonable accommodations and auxiliary aids and services designed to ensure that no qualified student with a disability is denied equal access to, participation in, or benefit of the programs and activities of SUNY Geneseo.

It is the goal of the Office of Accessibility Services to maximize student success, self-advocacy, and independence in an accessible academic environment.

Department Update

The Office of Disability Services is changing its department name to The Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) in order to align more closely with SUNY Geneseo’s value of equity and inclusion for all students, faculty, staff, and community members. OAS will continue to provide reasonable academic and housing accommodations for students with disabilities. Effective May 1, 2020 our new email address is access@geneseo.edu. Any email sent to disabilityservices@geneseo.edu will be automatically rerouted to the new email.
